A liberal Israeli think tank has filed a lawsuit against the son of the prime minister for a Facebook post it claims is libelous. Molad's lawyers filed the libel suit at a Tel Aviv court today over Yair Netanyahu's comments on social media that the organization was "radical and anti-Zionist" and funded by foreign interests. The younger Netanyahu was responding to a post on social media by Molad criticizing him after he reportedly refused to pick up after the family dog at a public park.
He signed his Facebook rebuttal with middle finger and poo emojis. Molad's lawyers seek a public apology from the prime minister's son and $39,000 in damages. Netanyahu's lawyer said in a statement that the "aggressive" suit sought to silence the prime minister's son.
